New Website and New Products.

All things web-based have been quite busy for Whinberry & Antler the past few weeks. The new website has now been launched with new products available to buy online- tea towels and tote bags all made in the UK using British made cotton (still keeping it all about 'made in Britain'). I must say a huge thank you to my friend, Gareth Davies, who has helped me enormously in re-designing and re-building the company website, which now runs much faster and is available on all things Apple.

You will also now be able to find Whinberry & Antler on notonthehighstreet.com as the shop has now been published. It's been really good to take the opportunity to edit and refresh some of the text for W&A as well as take some new product photos. Soon to come will be the adult and children's aprons once I have taken some good photographs of them.

So progress is steady and things are certainly moving forward nicely, it feels like W&A has grown and developed a lot since the company was started only ten months ago! I'm spending tomorrow printing fabric on the roll so I will be able to make that available to buy online once I have built a stock up.

Thanks for taking the time to read another post about W&A progress, I hope you like the new products and stay tuned for more!

Badger Badger Badger Print Print Print

Well, it has taken a fair bit of tweaking the custom made screen printing table, but we have finally printed the first batch of Whinberry & Antler fabric!

It feels like a little milestone has been met, and I'm really pleased with how the fabric turned out. This week I shall be printing the Hare and Hedgehog designs onto fabric and then shortly after it shall be available to buy by the metre from www.WhinberryAntler.com.

In other news, a very good friend of mine has redesigned the W&A website so it will be viewable on ipads and iphones alike and will run at a much faster speed! I have also been editing photographs for the W&A  shop on www.notonthehighstreet.com, so hopefully that will go live soon too. I will be sure to blog a link to it as soon as it is up and running.

Thanks for reading,
